Freaky Fanatics: Howie Mandel

0

So what started as me sharing my “Walk On The Wild Side” portrait with Howie Mandel turned into him featuring it on his Instagram account captioned “This fan art gets my golden buzzer”.

But if that is not exciting enough, I got contacted by Howie’s Manager/Producer Rich, who reached out to me to tell me how much Howie loved the art and helped me get the original sent out to him. Rich did not tell Howie it was coming and surprised him with it today! I received this picture that is now also posted on Howie’s Instagram account giving me a shoutout for gifting it to him

It feels great knowing the man who inspired my vision now has it in his hands (literally) and didn’t have to wait until our paths crossed to receive it (although I am still hopeful to meet him one day). I am so glad I took the risk to send it and trusted the divine that it would arrive safely. Feeling so many good vibes right now!

Check out Howie and others in the Freaky Fanatics slideshow on my official portfolio website!

Spitting Image: Night On The Town

1

I just finished another split face portrait and just in the nick of time. See I have always wanted to draw Doug Jones but he has portrayed so many incredible characters I never could decide which one I wanted to draw. His ability to emerge himself into the makeup and transform himself into whatever character he plays not only blows my mind but is really inspiring. He is not your typical actor playing a role, he is the role.

When he appeared on the TV adaptation of my favorite show What We Do In The Shadows as Baron Afanas I knew this was the character I wanted to create on paper. The Baron makes you fear him, love him, laugh with him and mourn for him. He also has a lot of wrinkles and I knew this would not just be a typical portrait but would give me a challenge. I also thought I had time to draw him and then I heard he was added as a guest to a convention we will be attending. I got so excited to meet him that of corpse my drawing hands went to work!

I completed the art piece just in time to gift it to him this weekend. I call it “Night On The Town”
